Hatfields and The Mccoys-- Not going to Happen

While I was in town this weekend, eating lunch at Get'n Basted (of course), talking to my friends that live in the area.. I was very surprised to be told the RFD had been resold again!!

Yep sold this year, recently. The buyer? none other than Dolly's Dixie Stampede! Yep, bought the building and all the land adjoining.. Nothing like buying out the competition before they even start up..

Of course my questions was what now? Acrobats staying? doing a differnet show there? what?

I was told they were planning on leveling the building.!! I dont know about that detail!, WOW!! Thats a lot of expense, just to level the property and not to worry about return on your money.. Stampede must be making a FORTUNE!!!.

I also am wondering, IF Stampeded did indeed purchase this, since they are managed by HFEC.. who actually bought it? Stampeded? or HFEC..

Full demo doesn't really bother a company when the cost ofa retro fit of the existing building exceeds starting all over. Look at the old Baldknobber's theatre. I know nothing of the inside, never been in there. But the outside front was one of the nicest looking theaters in Branson.
The same may well be true of the RFD. Too costly to turn into what the new owners want.

So what's the connection between World Choice Investments and Herschend Family Entertainment?
